QUOTES of the DAY
Kurtz questions Cox’s sobriety
On his late Sunday morning program, CNN’s “Reliable Sources”, host Howard Kurtz asked GQ’s Ana Marie Cox about her 36-entry live tweeting of MSNBC’s “The Ed” Show. “My question, were you sober?” Kurtz asked her (we presume jokingly as he had a benevolent look on his face while asking, but it was fair to ask considering the extent to which Cox mentions/brags about her imbibing.) Her reply (pre-empted by her own laughter): “I can’t really remember doing that so I’m just going to say yes.”
Internet ‘crap out’
“Anyone else have their Comcast Internet service crap out? I call & can’t get an operator. Msg says, check the website. #fail #comcastfail” — Mother Jone’s Washington Bureau Chief David Corn in a Sunday night tweet amidst other irate Internet-free journos.
“Is this comcast outage a cyber monday attack on our economy???” — Andrea Rodgers (a.k.a. “Ask Miss A” blogger) in a Sunday night tweet when Comcast Internet services conked out.
“Note to all journalists, especially those who do Web front pages: AP Style is “toward” not “towards.” No s, got it? #Gobacktojschoolsheesh” — RealClearPolitics’s Erin McPike in a Sunday tweet. She says she had quickly surfed the country’s major newspaper web sites in the morning.
A journo’s daring adventure
“It’s a great day to jump out of a perfectly good airplane.” — CBS News’s Kaylee Hartung in a Sunday tweet.
“Navigated two airports, no junk touched. Just the usual zillion frustrations.” — The Daily Beast‘s Washington Bureau Chief and CNN host Kurtz in a Sunday tweet (and awkward contemplation flash of of Kurtz’s junk).
